PITTSBURGH (AP) -- The Pittsburgh Steelers say they have too many other things to think about heading into Sunday night's season opener in Denver to focus on revenge.
The Broncos knocked the then-defending AFC champions out of the playoffs last January with a stunning 29-23 overtime upset in the Wild Card round. Tim Tebow hit Demaryius Thomas for an 80-yard score on the first play of the extra session to end Pittsburgh's season abruptly.
Pittsburgh insists there will be no carry-over. Linebacker James Harrison says the team doesn't believe in revenge, and linebacker Larry Foote points to significant roster turnover on both sides.
The Broncos have replaced Tebow with four-time MVP Peyton Manning. Much of the pregame hype has surrounded Manning's return from injury, which the Steelers say gives the game a very different feel.
