The question is faulty.
Go for the WIN and Martin does not get the record
Take the Loss but Martin gets the record
Scenario: Last game of the season, we are losing in the last 2 minutes and need to drive 60 yds for a game winning fieldgoal with no timeouts. Martin needs 8 yds, or about 2 more carries to break the record, but if we run the ball with our clock management skills we will surely not have enough time to try the fieldgoal for the win. Losing the game does not guarantee us the #1 pick in the draft. What do YOU want: the win, or a loss so that Martin can get the record.
The answer is:
C) Destination Garbage Dump.
