Which individual matchups could have a major impact on the outcome of Super Bowl LI?

As the clock draws closer to kickoff for Super Bowl LI, we've made cases for why the New England Patriots could win it all again and also why the Atlanta Falcons could be hoisting the Lombardi Trophy in the not-so-distant future.

After taking a look at the macro view of the game, it never hurts to dive a little further into how some individual matchups could have an impact.
