SBNation’s Blogging The Boys recaps Dallas Cowboys’ Hard Knocks Episode One

HBO’s 2021 Hard Knocks featuring the Dallas Cowboys is set to premiere Tuesday, August 10th at 10:00 p.m. ET.

The Hard Knocks series is featured on HBO, but if you don’t have an HBO subscription through your cable provider, you’ll still be able to watch via live stream. To do so, you’ll need a subscription to HBO Max streaming service. You can sign up for the basic streaming with commercials for $9.99 per month or $99 per year, while commercial free streaming is available for $14.99 per month ($149.99 per year).

Once you’ve got a subscription, HBO Max has apps available to stream on most devices, including iOS, Android, Roku, Apple TV, gaming consoles and more.

The primary storyline of Cowboys camp in Oxnard, CA, is the return of franchise quarterback Dak Prescott, whose 2020 season came to an abrupt end after suffering a brutal ankle injury. He’s already suffered a shoulder strain in camp, so his day-to-day status will surely be monitored through the series. Also primed to be a centerpiece of attention is star running back Ezekiel Elliott, who’s aiming for a bounceback year after experiencing career lows in yards, yards per carry, and touchdowns in 2020.

One would imagine Episode 1 would lock in on the opening weeks of training camp with Episode 2 focusing primarily on the team’s Hall of Fame Game preseason opener vs. the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Hall of Fame ceremony itself centered around inductees Jimmy Johnson and Drew Pearson.
