"We could not be more thrilled to bring Hard Knocks and the remarkable behind-the-scenes access it provides for the entirety of an NFL season," said Ross Ketover, NFL Films Senior Executive.

On Sunday, the Colts lost to the Seattle Seahawks in the season opener, but Wentz had a strong debut, throwing for 251 yards and two touchdowns. He comes to Indianapolis after a rocky end with the Philadelphia Eagles.
"There's a handful of plays I want back that I could've got us in the right protection and helped us out," Wentz said after the game on Sunday, per the team's official website. "So you can never take it right at face value. So we gotta learn from it, learn from the tape, and that's on all of us."
Wentz also talked about how the team doesn't like to lose. "Guys are frustrated with the loss. Everybody takes it hard and everyone is accountable for their own mistakes," Wentz said. "It's cool to see — I can already see how hungry everybody is. We'll be right back in there tomorrow working and everybody's hungry to get better. It's a good culture, guys are ready to go, go back to work, frustrated with it but we'll learn from it." The new series is a spinoff of Hard Knocks, which began airing in 2001 with the Baltimore Ravens. The series has looked at 16 different training camps over the years with the most previous being the Dallas Cowboys.
