The Patriots have already locked up the AFC’s No. 1 seed, so they won’t take chances with wide receivers Deion Branch (knee) and Wes Welker (rest) in Week Seventeen.

Both players are inactive against the Dolphins.

Also out for the Pats: Defensive lineman Brandon Deaderick, tight end Aaron Hernandez, defensive tackle Ron Brace, linebacker Tully Banta-Cain, and defensive end Mike Wright.

Inactive for the Dolphins: Cornerback Nolan Carroll, offensive linemen Lydon Murtha and Allen Barbre, defensive tackles Chris and Ryan Baker, wide receiver Julius Pruitt, linebacker Mike Rivera, and tight end Anthony Fasano.

    Julian Eddelman gets a chance to do his best Wes Welker impression, reminding us all of last year.
