I see two possibilities here, either your controller is not working well or you may have a connectivity issue.
Can you test with another controller to see if it is the same?
Please see the following for connectivity troubleshooting:

What's the story on Fifa ultimate team, checked connectivity with my service provider FINE done all trouble shooting criteria with support from your support team FINE so can you tell me mr community manager why my players with high pace get OUTPACED by slower players plus sluggish passing, running and overall gameplay in general! Is it SCRIPT HANDICAP or what? Can you explain without reading from a ea cue card please. Much appreciated look forward to hearing.
Why is it always ea games with these stupid connectivity issues? Hockey same things and fifa as well. I dont need to open ports or switch controllers to play gta or the show. Why is it always some thing you need to do to have a level playing field in ea games? Kind of annoying to pay 65$ for a game then you need 2 search forums 2 figure out how to do basic *.
