HBO’s NFL sports documentary franchise ‘Hard Knocks’ announced for the first time ever they will go behind the scenes of an entire NFL division.

The series has decided to take a deep dive into the AFC North division, which is filled with several former Alabama standouts.

The Baltimore Ravens, Cleveland Browns, Pittsburgh Steelers and the Cincinnati Bengals will be represented.

The Ravens come into the 2024 season as the reigning AFC North champions. The Ravens signed four-time pro bowler and 2015 Heisman Trophy Winner Derrick Henry to upgrade their run game. Henry reunites with his 2015 Alabama national champion teammate and three-time Pro Bowl defensive back, Marlon Humphrey.

The Browns finished second in last season’s AFC North divisional race. Cleveland features four Crimson Tide products, who are starters in wide receivers, Amari Cooper and Jerry Jeudy, along with offensive tackle, Jedrick Willis Jr., and defensive lineman, Dalvin Tomlinson.

Pittsburgh finished third in the AFC North division last season. Pittsburgh is led by former Alabama standouts, All-Pro safety Minkah Fitzpatrick and 2020 first-round running back, Najee Harris.

The Bengals rounded out the competitive AFC North by finishing fourth in the division. Cincinnati expects to be more electric on offense with the addition of third-round Alabama wide receiver, Jermaine Burton. Burton joins his former Tide teammate in Bengals Safety Jordan Battle.

The 18-time Emmy-winning series will premiere later this year on December 3rd. at 8 p.m. CST on HBO.
