He saw his first significant playing time in a December 15 game against the Miami Dolphins, when Patriots starting offensive lineman Nate Solder went down with an injury Kline was inserted into the lineup and played most of the game at left guard, with starting left guard Logan Mankins shifting to left tackle

Kline made his first start and played the entire game at left guard as the Patriots cruised to a 41-7 win over the Baltimore Ravens on December 22, 2013

For the season, Kline played in seven regular season games, including one start

By the end of the season, on the Patriots depth chart, he was listed as the second-team left guard behind starter and six-time Pro Bowl selection Mankins as well as second-team right guard behind Dan Connolly

Kline was the subject of an espncom question-and-answer feature blog on his life and early NFL career, "Football journey: OL Josh Kline" on November 30, 2013


Just days before the Patriots' final preseason game, on August 26 the perennial All-Pro Mankins was traded to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, a move expected to provide an opportunity for increased playing time for Kline, who started the final preseason game However, after a subpar performance in that game, Kline was on the inactive roster for the regular season opener against the Miami Dolphins Prior to the Patriots' second game, against the Minnesota Vikings, he was again added to the active roster and saw action on eight plays in the fourth quarter He was returned to the inactive list for their next three games

Kline made his first postseason start January 18, 2015 in the AFC Championship Game against the Indianapolis Colts following an injury to rookie center Bryan Stork, which resulted in guard Ryan Wendell moving to center and Kline at right guard Kline earned praise for his performance as the Patriots dominated the Colts 45-7 to advance to Super Bowl XLIX Kline then earned a Super Bowl ring as the Patriots defeated the Seattle Seahawks 28-24 in Super Bowl XLIX on February 1, 2015 Kline was one of two Patriots the other being backup quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo who was active but did not play any snaps


In the Patriots' regular-season opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers on September 10, Kline started the game at left guard in the 28-21 Patriots win In the offense's second series, he was switched to right guard, and rotated between the two positions throughout the game He was in the lineup for 54 of 61 offensive plays 89 percent

Through Week 9, Kline started every game for New England, rotating between left and right guard

On November 10, 2015, the Patriots announced the signing of Kline to a two-year contract extension through the 2017 season

In the 2015 regular season, Kline played in 14 games, starting 13 He missed two games due to a shoulder injury Kline played in 816 snaps, or 776 percent of the team's offensive plays as the Patriots won their division and the #2 seed in the AFC Playoffs
