Houston Texans offensive coordinator Bobby Slowik believes his star-studded unit will have an answer for every defense this season.

"We got a group of guys in the receiving room, in the tight end room, in the running back room that we feel like have good skill sets, and they're all elite at something," Slowik said Thursday, according to Adam Wexler of SportsTalk790.

"Our job is to take advantage of what they're elite at. ... We got a quarterback that really gives us no limitations."

After C.J. Stroud's spectacular rookie campaign in 2023, the Texans got the quarterback more weapons by acquiring former Pro Bowl running back Joe Mixon and four-time Pro Bowl wideout Stefon Diggs.

"It takes all limits off of whatever you feel you need to do to win a game," Slowik said of the additions, per SportsRadio610's Shaun Bijani. "If we feel like we gotta throw the ball deep to win a game, we can do that. If we gotta throw it short to win a game, we can do that. If we gotta run the ball 40 times to win a game, we feel like we can do that."

Diggs joins a Texans receiving group that already featured the likes of Nico Collins and Tank Dell, while Mixon will spearhead a backfield that contains Dameon Pierce.

Houston ranked 13th in points per game last year with 22.2.
