Frequently asked questions about the HBO 'Hard Knocks' series.

The Houston Texans will be featured on the 10th season of “Hard Knocks”.

But what exactly does that mean, and what can we expect?

“Hard Knocks” is a sports-based reality documentary series produced by NFL Films and HBO which details the daily lives and routines, both personal and professional, of players, coaches and staff of an NFL team during its training camp and preseason.

The show offers a behind-the-scenes look at how a team prepares for an NFL season with a 30-person crew that shoots well over 1,500 hours of footage and has access to all aspects of the organization and its facilities, including team meetings, training rooms, living spaces, practice fields, offices and more.

“Hard Knocks” debuted in 2001 with the Baltimore Ravens and has featured seven teams in its brief history, including the Ravens (2001), the Dallas Cowboys (2002, 2008), the Kansas City Chiefs (2007), the Cincinnati Bengals (2009, 2013), the New York Jets (2010), the Miami Dolphins (2012), and the Atlanta Falcons (2014).
