NAPLES, Fla. -- By Lydia Kos standards, this is a major slump.She hasnt won in nine starts since mid-July, her best finish being a silver medal at the Rio Olympics. She hasnt been among the top 10 in any of her last five starts and wasnt even in the top 40 in three of those.Despite all that, all the big prizes -- player of the year, money title, scoring title and the yearlong points chase called the Race to the CME Globe -- are well within Kos reach this week. The LPGA Tour season wraps up with the CME Group Tour Championship that starts Thursday, when Ariya Jutanugarn and Ko will basically go head to head for year-end honors.Obviously, Im not coming into this week with the greatest form, said Ko, who won the Globe in its inaugural season in 2014 and retained it last year. But I still feel like its been a season where Im really proud of it. For me to be in this position, to have an opportunity to go for the Globe again -- and all the other things -- its a pretty cool position to be in.Only a win this week would be enough to give Ko her second straight player-of-the-year award; any other result, and that title goes to Jutanugarn. They come in separated by $17,305 in the money standings, and Ko (69.611) enters with a minuscule edge over In Gee Chun (69.632) for the Vare Trophy presented to the player with the lowest scoring average.It would be a pretty special Sunday, Ko said.Its probably going to be anyway, whether thats the case for Ko or someone else. The LPGA got a dream scenario last season, when all the trophies were decided in the final holes on the final day.Such a scene could repeat itself this week, and the LPGA wouldnt mind some final-hour drama.Im not going to be nervous, Jutanugarn said.The points in the CME Globe standings reset for the final week, so Jutanugarn, Ko and Brooke Henderson all truly control their destinies when it comes to the $1 million bonus that goes to the points champion. Win this week, and the Globe is hers.Going into this year it was a big goal of mine to be in the top three and give myself a great opportunity in the final event of the year, Henderson said. Im really looking forward to it. I know itll be a tough week, a tough four rounds, but I know if I get off to a fast start and am able to play my game, maybe good things will happen.Jutanugarn turns 21 next week. Still, shes the elder stateswoman among the three who arrived in Naples this week with the most realistic chances of hoisting the CME Globe on Sunday.Im old? she asked.Well, yes, in this example.Ko, who has been the worlds No. 1 player for more than a year and will remain there for the foreseeable future, is 19. Henderson turned 19 in September. Of the nine players with a mathematical chance of finishing atop this years Race to the CME Globe standings, the oldest -- Shanshan Feng -- is all of 27.The average age of the players in that group is 21.9, though this event last year saw a tour veteran prevail.Definitely felt like a walk-off home run, said defending tournament champion Cristie Kerr, who is 39, essentially meaning shes been alive as long as Jutanugarn and Ko combined. Yeah, Ive had great memories since Ive been back walking around kind of remembering some of the shots I hit or how I felt. Ive played pretty well the last couple days, so fingers crossed.DIVOTS: Ko won on the Tiburon course in Naples two years ago, finishing at 10-under 278. Kerrs winning score last year was 271. ... As was the case last year, the three players atop the Globe points standings -- this time, Jutanugarn, Henderson and Ko -- will play together on Thursday. Tedric Thompson Jersey .

RENTON, Wash. -- The standard in Seattle has been that the Seahawks are going to be among the better teams in the NFL at running the football.Except this year. And its not as simple as Marshawn Lynch no longer being around.Going into Sundays game against division rival Arizona, the Seahawks are near the bottom of the league in a number of rushing categories. Seattle is 25th in the league averaging just 88.8 yards per game and 30th in yards per attempt at just 3.2.They are very un-Seahawks-like numbers.Were OK. We just need more emphasis added, we just need more turns, coach Pete Carroll said. We need to run it more. We just need more numbers.There are a number of reasons that Seattles run game is off this season, from a revamped offensive line to presumptive starting running back Thomas Rawls being limited in the season opener then suffering a hairline fibula fracture in Week 2. He wont be back for a few more weeks. Christine Michael is Seattles leading rusher with 354 yards, but 106 of those yards came against San Francisco in Week 3.The biggest culprit in derailing the run game could be Russell Wilson. Or, more specifically, a combination of the ankle and knee injuries that have slowed Wilson early in the season.Through five games, Wilson has just 35 yards rushing and no run longer than 9 yards.Compare that with the first five games of previous years and its clear whats lacking. Through five games last year, Wilson had 198 yards rushing. In 2014, it was 221 yards on the ground. And in 2013, Wilson had 233 yards rushing.The running threat usually posed by Wilson simply has not been there this season and the trickle-down is affecting the rest of Seattles run game.Its a different run game that were using right now, offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell said. Its still a part of us, its still someething that weve always had, just the zone read part of it is not been used as much as weve gone to other styles of runs.dddddddddddd.Yet the Seahawks are struggling to find consistency with that different style. Seattle has 140 rushes in five games and only 11 have gone for 10 yards or more; the Seahawks have 34 rushes for no gain or negative yardage. The revamped offensive line has shown flashes of being the bullying unit offensive line coach Tom Cable wants, but also moments where simple blocks arent being made.Hitting combinations. Putting your helmet where it needs to be based on the run call, consistently. Because were doing it a bunch, Cable said. Were doing some nice things in terms of being on the same page, staying on schedule, meaning the down and the distance. But you certainly would like to have more consistency when you run the football.Thats not to say everything has gone wrong up front for Seattle. The Seahawks have been surprisingly good at protecting Wilson, allowing just 10 sacks in the first five games. Compare that with a year ago, when Seattle allowed 22 sacks in the first five weeks.The Seahawks are also getting enough production from that passing game, which is helping to make up for the lack of a ground attack.But thats not the way this team wants to achieve its offensive success.Youd like to get them both. Thats really what were chasing here, is to find that balance, Cable said. I think that makes us really dangerous and more explosive. Explosive play has been OK, but I think thats the one element that would then tie the whole thing together. I think we would be pretty tough then.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys 2019 Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping Jerseys NFL Cheap Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys 2018 ' ' '
