Unanswered questions about the NFL's deal with Verizon: 1) Are CBS (CBS -0.9%) and Fox (NWS -0.8%) getting a free ride out of the arrangement between the NFL and Verizon which will see games steamed live on mobile phones or will it cut into the benefits of their own deal to stream games on devices other than TVs and smartphones? 2) If the deal allows games to be viewed on phones, but not tablets, where will the line be drawn as the two wireless products increasingly resemble each other? 3) Will Verizon (VZ +2.3%) recoup its investment over the long-term as new subscribers stay on board or will the fees subscribers pay for access to the NFL cover the cost? 4) Is DirecTV (DTV +0.2%) the odd man out as its NFL Sunday Ticket package begins to look outdated?

    Will the players in the game be "steamed live" like lobsters or will there be a special recipe?
