Horrible Lag When Kicking Online

Is anyone else having problems with the kicking game online? I understand there's going to be some lag in an online game but this is a real problem. The kick meter is so jerky, stopping and starting so sporadically, that I nor my opponent can kick extra points, let alone field goals. Hell, keeping a kick off in bounds is a challenge. This is the first year I've taken the plunge this gen and bought Madden new and played it online. Has it been this bad in previous years? It's a shame. I'm enjoying the game but online is BROKEN.

It's usually a predictable amount of lag, so if you get used to it and start hitting the button early, you can manage it.  But yeah, it kinda sucks.

How does the game's netcode compensate for lag in other departments apart from kicking?  Better than the previous iterations?
