How about the 2012 Kansas City Chiefs as the 2011 Houston Texans?

That's the way Evan Silva of Rotoworld sees it, at least offensively.

I think they're copycatting the 2011 Texans, installing a full-blown zone-run scheme with Charles as a lesser version of Arian Foster, Hillis as a rich man's Ben Tate, and Dwayne Bowe as Andre Johnson. Tony Moeaki can be Owen Daniels, and Kevin Boss the Joel Dreessen.

Silva has a very smart and entertaining read on all the games here.

The Texans that year were 1st in rushing attempts and 2nd in rushing yards. They were 30th in passing attempts but 18th in passing yards. In other words, they were efficient.

I think those numbers are the types the Chiefs would like to see. If they are able to rush the ball that much, it's probably a good sign they're going to be successful.
