Boyle signed with the Green Bay Packers as an undrafted free agent on May 4, 2018. After an impressive preseason, Boyle made the 53-man roster in September 2018, as the team's third string quarterback behind Aaron Rodgers and DeShone Kizer.
Boyle did not play during the 2018 regular season. He saw his first professional playing time in a regular season on October 20, 2019, during a Week 7 win over the Oakland Raiders. Boyle took over for Rodgers during the final minutes of the game after victory was assured, kneeling the ball three times for −3 yards to run out the clock. He saw more extended playing time five weeks later on November 24 during a lopsided loss to the San Francisco 49ers, completing his first NFL pass to backup tight end Robert Tonyan, and finished the game 3-of-4 for 15 yards.
Boyle was scheduled to become a restricted free agent following the 2020 season, but the team did not extend a tender to him at the start of the new league year, so he became an unrestricted free agent on March 17, 2021.
On March 22, 2021, Boyle signed a one-year contract with the Detroit Lions. He was placed on injured reserve on September 2, and activated on November 20, making his first career start in Week 11 in place of an injured Jared Goff. He completed 15 of 23 pass attempts for 77 yards, but also threw two interceptions in a 10–13 loss to the Cleveland Browns. He made his second career start in a Week 16 game against the Atlanta Falcons with Goff sidelined due to COVID-19, completing 24 of 34 pass attempts for 219 yards and a touchdown, but also threw a loss-sealing interception with less than a minute to play on goal-to-go, losing 16–20.
On March 14, 2022, Boyle signed a one-year contract extension with the Lions. He was released on August 30, 2022, and re-signed to the practice squad.
