Todd Gurley finished 22 yards behind Kareem Hunt for the NFL's rushing title last season, something he said didn't bother him at the time.
Gurley sat out in Week 17 as the Los Angeles Rams got themselves ready for the playoffs.
"Yeah, I was lying, I really did care about the title," Gurley said. "That would be a pretty cool thing to get. I tell people that all the time: It's like you play for team goals but who wouldn't want to be the NFL sack leader? Who wouldn't want to be the NFL passing or rushing leader?"
Gurley enters Week 14 as the NFL's rushing leader, holding a 25-yard lead over Ezekiel Elliott.
