The New York Jets fell to 0-10 on Sunday, putting them in jeopardy of becoming just the third NFL team to have a winless season.
Frank Gore, 37, doesn't know if he'll play next season and wants to make sure he doesn't end his career with an 0-16 mark.
"You don't want to go 0-16, especially if this is my last year," he said. "I can't go out like that.
"Hopefully, we can get one. And I can't wait until we get it. I'll be so happy. If it is my last year, I can't say I'm going out 0-16."
Gore has 15,794 yards, trailing only Walter Payton (16,726) and Emmitt Smith (18,355) on the all-time list.
