Best Answer

One of the statistics kept in football is rushing yards. A 'rushing title' basically means the same as 'who led the league in rushing yards'. The player that wins a 'rushing title' is the player 'who led the league in rushing yards'. Rushing yards are accrued when an offensive player advances the ball past the line of scrimmage without the aid of a forward pass.
