Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Derek Carr posted a hilarious photo of himself on social media following a close loss on Sunday Night Football.

This week’s Sunday Night Football matchup was a shootout from start to finish. Kansas City Chiefs star quarterback Patrick Mahomes led his team in an offensive showcase that saw both he and Carr light up the scoreboard and stat sheet.

It was very nearly a flawless outing from Carr and a balanced Raiders offense. However, in the end it was Mahomes and the visiting Chiefs who got the last laugh, avenging an earlier-season loss to their AFC West rivals. The Chiefs won on Sunday night by a score of 35-31 to improve to 9-1 atop the division.

Mahomes and the explosive Kansas City offense needed just over a minute to erase a late Raiders lead. It turned out to by light work for Mahomes. He marched his team 75 yards on seven plays in 1:15 to get the go-ahead touchdown and send the divisional rival Raiders to 6-4.

Carr was without a doubt upset by the close loss. He posted an “Undertaker”-like photo of himself on Twitter late last night.

“On to the net one…” Carr wrote on Twitter.

Derek Carr Posts ‘Undertaker’-Like Photo

Carr appeared to stare directly into a Sunday Night Football camera and looked like the Undertaker. Coincidentally, this came on the same night that the wrestling legend retired after three decades in the WWE.

Meanwhile, NFL fans on Twitter were quick to point out the similarities between the two athletes.

“It sort of feels like Carr is paying tribute to the Undertaker or something. #Undertaker30 #KCvsLV,” one account wrote.

Another account tweeted side-by-side images of Carr and the Undertaker, captioning the photo, “almost.”

The Chiefs, now 9-1, will continue their road trip in Week 12 when they visit the Tampa Bay Buccaneers who are 7-3. Las Vegas, meanwhile, sits at 6-4 and will head to the East Coast where they’ll square off with the 3-7 Atlanta Falcons.
