NFL Films plans to supersize HBO’s Hard Knocks, featuring not one but two teams for the summer training camp series.

Both the Chargers and the Rams will be featured –  as long as training camp continues and share a home at SoFi Stadium for the 2020-2021 season.

ESPN said the NFL was going to make the announcement last week during their annual meeting but canceled it over uncertainties due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

Philip Rivers and Todd Gurley, both faces of each franchise, found new homes in Indianapolis and Atlanta.

The Rams will also display their new logo and uniform change in the preseason.

Do you think that NFL Films and HBO will be able to film a new edition of Hard Knocks?

Do you feel that Hard Knocks is a distraction?
