Preston: Firing Ravens coach John Harbaugh at this time would make no sense

By game time Sunday there were news reports that Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti would fire coach John Harbaugh during the bye week if his team lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers and fell another game behind them in the AFC North race.

Regardless of the loss, Bisciotti won’t fire...
