Last year the HBO documentary television series Hard Knocks did its first-ever in-season feature of an NFL team. This year they're repeating that idea with a new team.

On Monday, the Arizona Cardinals announced that they will be the in-season team featured on the show. Their team will be featured starting this November on HBO and HBO Max.

This will be Arizona's first time being featured on the show. There will probably be no shortage of storylines for them or any team right in the middle of the NFL season.
