Houston (CBS Houston) – Editor’s Note: Each week the Texans’ opponent will hold a conference call with the Houston media. Here are the notes from that call.

This week Titans head coach Mike Munchak and quarterback Jake Locker were made available. Here’s what they had to say:

>>>Running back Chris Johnson has struggled to return to form since running for 2,000 yards in 2010. Mike Muchak isn’t focused on Johnson hitting homeruns out of the backfield, instead he wants him to limit negative plays.

“I’m more interested in what we saw (against Pittsburg) just getting a lot of three and four yard plays and really not having any negative runs.” said Munchak.

>>>Munchak also hopes the Titans offense line can play damage control against J.J. Watt.

“He’s going to make some plays, we just don’t want them to be the big plays where if he happens to get a sack, just make sure he doesn’t knock the ball out of the quarterback’s hands.” said Munchak.

>>>A big point of emphasis for the Titans this year is controlling the game through the run, something Munchak knows the Texans do well.

“The Texans have had a lot of great success the last four or five years of doing things that we want to be able to do too, which is run the football, the play action, (and) controlling the line of scrimmage.” said Munchak.

>>>If Ed Reed plays, Jake Locker will have to change the way he reads the Texans defense.

“At times you might see what the shell of the defense is but he might not be where he’s supposed to be just because he’s the release or reading your eyes or whatever. He’s taking a chance and a lot of time it’s a very calculated accurate chance.” said Locker.

>>>The Titans are well aware of their connection to Houston.

“It’s a big game for both sides and each city is really excited about it. When we’re there once on the road and then we get them once here, you definitely feel a little difference in the crowd.” said Locker.
