South Korea won gold in four minutes 9.498 seconds. China came in second but was disqualified because their skaters did not immediately leave the track after passing off to their teammates. That bumped the Canadian team of Marie-Eve Drolet, Jessica Hewitt, Valerie Maltais and Marianne St-Gelais up from third place. Canadas final time was 4:10.641. The disqualification was a role reversal from the 2010 Vancouver Games, when South Korea was disqualified for impeding and China was promoted to the gold medal. Italy finished well back of the top three teams after one of its skaters fell, but earned a bronze medal after Chinas penalty. The Italians finished in 4:14.014. Cheap Ray Ban Sunglasses For Sale .

With leading receiver Stefon Diggs out of the game with a groin injury, Thielen and Cordarrelle Patterson capably stepped up for the Vikings with the former collecting a 36-yard pass for the opener before Matt Asiata went over from a yard.The visitors were unable to contain Marcus Sherels who returned a punt 79 yards for a touchdown and Patterson scored on another sharp throw by Bradford, who produced another turnover-free game and deftly guided the Vikings into their bye week without a defeat.Osweiler was overmatched by Minnesotas relentless rush and coverage, finishing 19 for 42 for 184 yards, one interception and a late touchdown pass while taking four sacks.The Texans (3-2) were denied on 12 of 13 third downs and were unable or unwilling to do much other than dump off short passes.
