The Las Vegas Raiders' season ended on Saturday in a heartbreaking (and controversial) playoff loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. But quarterback Derek Carr couldn't be prouder of his team.

Taking to Twitter, Carr said that the 2021 season was filled with "heartbreak, tragedy, and resiliency." He expressed pride in his team and their accomplishments, and thanked them for their efforts.

"A season filled with heart break, tragedy, and resiliency is now over," Carr wrote. "I'm so proud of our TEAM and what we accomplished. Everyone outside the building doubted and we overcame. To those who encouraged and strengthened our guys thank you. We will see you again soon. (skull emoji)"

The Raiders went 10-7 in the regular season, making a head coaching change along the way. They beat the Los Angeles Chargers in the final game of Week 18 to secure their first trip to the playoffs since 2016.

But despite their accomplishments, the 2022 offseason is an uncertain one for the Las Vegas Raiders - and Derek Carr.

A head coaching change could be looming, and Carr himself could be on the move due to his contract.

We'll find out a lot about what direction the Raiders are going in over the next few weeks. But if yesterday's loss was the final game for Derek Carr as a Raider, it's one he can be proud of.

Will Carr return to the Raiders next season?
