Browns Vs Lions: Who is QB Tim Boyle?

By Jared Mueller

The Detroit Lions are doubtful to have quarterback Jared Goff available to start for them against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday in Week 11. Goff was injured against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 10 but was able to finish the game.

If Goff can’t play, as expected, Tim Boyle is likely to start in his place with David Blough backing him up. Boyle is an unknown to many fans especially the Browns. Here is what we know about him before he likely starts in Cleveland:

  • 6’3″, 220+ pounds
  • Undrafted out of Eastern Kentucky where he threw for over 2,000 yards, 11 TDs and 13 INTs as a senior in 2017
  • Strong arm not highly mobile
  • Played in 11 games for the Green Bay Packers since entering the league in 2018
  • Has completed three of his four pass attempts as a pro for 15 yards and one first down
  • Was mostly used late in blowout games for the Packers where he is credited with 18 rushes for -16 yards as he kneeled the ball to end games
  • He may have made his own college highlight reel on YouTube (the poster is Tim Boyle in a video of Tim Boyle) at the end of his senior season:

In Week 11, Boyle steps in against Myles Garrett, Jadeveon Clowney and the rest of the Cleveland defense in desperate need of another big game. While his history lacks any reason to believe he will be successful, anything can happen on a given Sunday in the NFL.
