unlike some of you here, i still struggle with crosswords.. (and i don't even try cyptic ones!)

yesterdays NYT crossword had words that each had two clues.. just as we have played with changing punctuation to change meaning.. what do two words do you see, and what possible clues would lead you to the answer? and if you have more of the same.. add them (and if you also completed the crossword, hold off and let other have some fun..)
Ans to the crossword:
superbowl
weeknight
goodsport
woodscrew
