Everyone knows about the no-nonsense, football-first culture the Detroit Lions have instilled under head coach Dan Campbell. That approach could be threatened, though, with cameras from HBO's "Hard Knocks" around to profile the team this year and provide a potential distraction.

Any worries about the reality show's impact were shut down by a very on-brand quote from running back Jamaal Williams.

Williams made it very clear how he feels about being on primtime TV with a NSFW response. The mention of "I just want to play football" is the exact kind of sentiment this Lions team strives to live by, so it's safe to say most players won't be consumed by the cameras.

Letting a TV crew in does present Campbell's squad with a challenge, and he likely wants to see them respond accordingly. If Williams' comments are any indication, his team will pass this test with flying colors.

FanDuel Sportsbook's 2022-23 NFL odds have the Lions' win total over/under set at 6.5 games - projecting them to at least double their win total from last season.
