The 2022 edition of HBO’s Hard Knocks will follow the Detroit Lions training camp as head coach Dan Campbell enters Year 2 in the latest attempt to turn around a struggling franchise. The series debuted in 2001, and this will be the first time the Lions have been featured on Hard Knocks.
The Lions started the 2021 season 0-10-1 and finished with a 3-13-1 record. To add insult to injury, Detroit never won a playoff game in the 12 seasons Matthew Stafford was with the organization, and he is a Super Bowl champion one year into his tenure with the Los Angeles Rams.
The Lions have not made the postseason since 2016, and their over/under season win total is set at 6.5 with -120 odds toward the over on DraftKings Sportsbook.
